Mark Jenkins

Go Figure!
Posted by Gestalten—01/2012

American artist Mark Jenkins's urban (and rural) interventions are street-smart—in the truest sense of the word.

Jenkins creates and sets free a colorful cast of characters by way of clear tape casts: the homeless, kids, vagrants, polar bears, and horses (to name but a few) all take their place in the wild, wild urban space, while interacting with the surrounding buildings and public places that provide the context and set the stage. Positioning them around the world, Jenkins’ sculptures have made their way around the world in cities throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Disturbing, humorous, and enigmatic in equal measures, Mark Jenkins enlists his hyper-realistic sculptures into the service of, for example, Greenpeace, as well as for exhibitions, performances, art galleries, and workshops. We met the Washington, DC-based Jenkins in Berlin, where he was contributing to a dance theatre piece.

The artist’s first comprehensive monograph Mark Jenkins: The Urban Theatre will be released to coincide with his Berlin exhibition Glazed Paradise at Gestalten Space from January 19 to February 26.
